Thrive Mobile will save lives
This custom mobile vehicle will provide free on-the-go HIV and STI testing to people with transportation barriers in Thrive Alabama's 12-county service area.
The rate of new HIV infections is often highest in Alabama’s rural counties. Mobile testing will allow greater reach to those people as well as other areas where options for testing are rare. Those who remain unaware of their HIV/STI status are at highest risk for transmitting the virus/infection. Linking people with HIV or STIs to care makes for healthier individuals and a healthier community. Thrive Mobile will allow us to engage individuals who might not seek out testing in a standard clinic and also provide some basic STI treatment.
Through a combination of grants, event sponsorships, corporate gifts, and your generous donations we raised the nearly $400,000 needed to bring this much needed medical service to North Alabama.
